Library Hours Expansion Update

The Library is moving ahead with plans to expand hours later this fall.

On June 20, 2022, the City Council adopted the FY23 budget that will restore additional hours to the Library that had been reduced over the last two years due to the pandemic and economic shifts. This includes adding a fourth day of service to the Children’s, College Terrace and Downtown Libraries; a sixth day to Mitchell Park and Rinconada Libraries; and the hiring of additional staff.  

The Library is working with the Human Resources Department to fill vacancies and move forward with the expansion of library hours. As staff vacancies are filled, the Library plans to phase the expansion of hours starting this fall through the end of 2022.
